Poland’s President Duda has criticized Chancellor Scholz and French President Emmanuel Macron for talks with Putin. In his criticism, Duda draws comparisons to Hitler.
Polish President Andrzej Duda has criticized the fact that Chancellor Olaf Scholz and French President Emmanuel Macron are continuing to hold talks with Kremlin chief Vladimir Putin despite Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine.
“I am amazed by all these talks that are being held with Putin, especially by Chancellor Scholz, by President Emmanuel Macron. These talks are useless,” criticized Duda in a “Picture” interview that was published on YouTube on Wednesday. Rather, they caused “a kind of legitimacy of a person who is responsible for crimes committed by the Russian army in Ukraine,” said Duda.
Putin alone is responsible for sending his army to Ukraine, Duda said. The commanders are subordinate to him. The situation is similar to that of Adolf Hitler in World War II. “And did anyone talk to Adolf Hitler like that during World War II?” Duda asked. ‘Did someone say he has to save face? That you have to do it in such a way that it is not humiliating for Adolf Hitler?” He doesn’t know such voices.
